“At the Pratt, our business is access. That access may come in the form of a book, a website, or maybe a person. We find the resources to help people achieve their goals.”

Meghan McCorkell — Chief of Marketing, Communications, & Strategy

“One of the hardest things to accept, acknowledge, manage and learn from is our own unconscious bias.”
